Over at AllThingsBeautiful, Alexandria discusses the note passed in study hall between Mr. NukeHead and the Commander in Chief. Seems to me that it's another of planned steps in a project task list that has to be completed in order to satisfy the project management Nazis that the project is progressing at the pace agreed upon previously by upper Management (sorry….I digress). Ahem. The letter, while lengthy (18 pages), doesn't appear to accomplish much (like most project-managed tasks. GRRRRR)
The letter is of course just one building block in this effort to ultimately shift the perception of 'Mistrust' from the lying, cheating and generally contemptuous Iranian Mullahs to that of our Administration. Most of our Liberal friends are of course only too eager to support the Thug-In-Chief in his effort, as Mark Noonan @ Blogs for Bush points out:
Honestly, except for his closing mumbo-jumbo about everyone getting ready to worship his version of Allah, there isn't the slightest difference between Ahmadinejad's letter and the average speech by Al Gore, Howard Dean or Russ Feingold.
We are also little surprised to be told by Iranian political analyst Saeed Leilaz that the letter "could have been the beginning of a new process," and that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's reaction, which has of course already been labeled as a 'quick brushoff', would fuel anti-American feelings in Iran; that her response would "strengthen the suspicion (inside Iran) that the U.S. is thinking of a military option only and not a political solution" to the standoff over Iran's nuclear program.
Just what the Left wants to hear.
One thing certain, there is no way the left will ever live this down – that out of the mouth of a murdering lunatic came their own words back to haunt them.
(delinked) LGF outlines the Left’s glowing review of The Letter. Sickening.
The Baron at Gates of Vienna knocks on the skullcaps of the collective UN/US/EU/Russia dhimmis-in-waiting, wondering if anyone is home.
Hello? These are the same Palestinian people who voted overwhelmingly to install terrorists as their representative leaders! Every dollar delivered to a municipal employee of Ramallah is a dollar freed up to buy the materials to make more Hassam rockets.
This EU-instigated cave-in to Hamas smells like a payment of the jizya to me.
LGF has (delinked) more on the caving.
Captain's Quarters reports GOOD NEWS, saying
CENTCOM announced today that they had captured al-Qaeda correspondence in Iraq that discusses the state of the insurgency, especially around Baghdad but also around the entire country. Far from optimistic, the documents captured in an April 16th raid reveal frustration and desperation, as the terrorists acknowledge the superior position of American and free Iraqi forces and their ability to quickly adapt to new tactics.
This document shows that we have just about triumphed over the AQ network in Iraq, and AQ knows it. Hopefully, the American media might finally start reporting it.
I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, CQ. MSM reporting on something going right? NEVER!
So let's recap. Mr. NukeHead sends a letter and anyone with a brain discounts it as a ploy. I wonder if the glow in the dark guy told him to do it(?). Dhimmitude continues. AQ is losing and they know it. I like the last one the best, don't you?
P.S. Mike Adams is hits another nail hilariously on the head. Some people just don't get it.
